A couple of these o-rings are so dry the whole plastic part will fall out if I turn the slides upside down. Honda does not list the size of this o-ring on the parts site but only a whole gasket kit which I don’t need.

Also, it would be good to know the size of the drain screw o-rings.

Thanks

You would not be able to source it on your own somewhere .I have tried and nothing is available that would fit properly.Best solution and cost prudent is to order RANDAKS CARB KIT.Replace all old parts with kit provided parts and you will be good to go.You can order some carb kit on a ebay or amazon very cheep but be aware that being cheep has its down side.
Good luck and safe drive.

Yes, I prefer OEM parts to after market parts. Most of the Honda carbs prior to 1984 usually just need a good cleaning with the exception of Air cut offs, fuel pump, and some o-rings.
